it matters. so jimmy, president obama taking this issue of immigration on the road today. he did so, though, back in 2011 without a lot of success. but today, dan pfeiffer is tweeting out that the president will applaud the bipartisan senate agreement, saying it's consistent with his long-held view. but jimmy, this bill is not a sure thing in the senate, let alone the house. so explain why there is con flicking uniformity on this. >> well, listen. i think it's great that the six senator who is got up on the podium yesterday and said that they have a framework for an agreement for a framework to get immigration done, is great. the problem is this. the problem is -- and that's a great first step, but you've got to put it down on paper. and once you start putting things down on paper, you actually start writing legislation. and then you ask members to start voting on this legislation, and that's when it gets remarkably murkier in the building behind me. think about it in 2007. you know, you had 22 republicans that are currently sitting in the united states senate today who voted against bush's

cain, have you talked to president obama about this issue? >> i have not. >> what are the state of relations these days? >> um, i have great respect for the president. i hope and i believe that at some point we will all be meeting with the president on this issue, because we need to coordinate with the administration. but i think i haven't seen a degree of partisanship overall as there is today, but we are showing some signs of bipartisanship. this thing we just did in averting the nuclear option in the senate, this issue, i think that republicans are more inclined to let the process go forward, and senator reid is more, more inclined to let us have amendments. i see, i think that when we are down to 11% approval rating, there was a favorability thing, different things are favorable, a colonoscopy is viewed more favorably than a member of congress. [laughter] we're in kind of bad shape, to say the least. i won't pursue that line any further -- [laughter] but, you know, i've got this old line, a guy ran up to me in the airport and said, say, anybody ever tell you you look a lot like senator m
and the white house actually come together and find a solution to one of our country's most contentious issues? according to president obama in las vegas today the timing couldn't be better. >> obama: the time has come for common sense comprehensive immigration reform. [ applause ] now is the time. >> john: actually it's way pastime for the 11 million undocumented immigrants already living and working in this country. and way too ahead of its time for tea party republicans who never heard of an undocumented immigrant that they didn't want deported but thanks to the president's overwhelming support from latino voters last november, republicans now seem willing to at least pretend to deal with the issue. as we reported last night a gang of six in the house is work on an immigration bill. one they hope to release before the state of the union address february 12th and a gang of eight in the senate has put forth its principles for immigration reform. principles which president obama said today are very much in line with his own. >> obama: smarter enforcement a pathway to earned citizenship improve
are so extreme on these issues, paul ryan is sending the message that it is actually president obama that is extreme and not dealing with these issues. i think that is the message that they are sending. dagen: do you think that the state of the union address will take on those critics and address it? it would certainly have to with the president skipping over it in the inaugural speech. >> you would think it would have to be specific. however, we thought you would have to address the issues after the 2010 shellacking, in the president's words, when the republicans took over the control. the president spent very little time on entitlement reform. i think it will be interesting to see. i think you see the choice that this administration makes. dagen: i fixated on longer-term interest rates. that, again, is how much it cost this country to borrow from around the world. look at that ten year yield today. it is back above 2%. that will be the thing that forces lawmakers to act. >> that is the thing that everyone is fixated on. how the federal reserve has fixated into this, i mean, these r
refuses to federalize the issue. obama's speech, then, was sound and fury. you're here for your big conference and i just wanted to ask you when you were listening to president obama's inaugural address and heard the remarks, did you spike the football? >> i honestly cried. i was sitting on the steps of the capitol with my 11-year-old daughter and to hear the president inauguration after inauguration was a powerful moment. >> we're going to have to break away for just a second. here's secretary of state hillary clinton. >> i was very honored when john asked me to take part in this because john is is the right choice, to carry forward the obama administration's foreign policy and i urge his speedy confirmation. as we've heard from both the chairman and ranking member, as we just heard from senator warren, he will bring about a leadership that is ex am plear. he has acted as the young returning veteran from vietnam who appeared before this committee through the time that he served with such distinction as its chairman. he's been a valued partner to this administration and to me person
. let me go to you, mr. lapierre. president obama has issued 23 executive actions on gun violence. can you discuss the commonality between your organization, the nra, and the obama administration when it comes to finding ways to reduce gun violence? >> what we think works, he is what nra has done historically. we do more of which we put more money in. reese support of enforcing the laws on the books 100% of the time. that works. we have supported prison bill and spirit we have states like california where, more than any other state in the country, they send more inmates back in the street and more inmates back in jail for new crimes against their citizens than any other kind -- stayed in the nation. -- states in the nation. -- state in the nation. nra has always supported what worked. -- works. the innocent are being preyed upon. the statistics are numbing. the 911 calls are horrible. at the scene of the crime, it is the criminal and the victim. victims all over the country want to be able to protect themselves. this whole debate almost puts it in two different categories. if you are i
cheerleader is now taking issue with the questions asked of president obama and secretary clinton? >> i mean, didn't you expect one series of tough questions? >> especially so in the case of "60 minutes." >> i mean, it really was something you would expect from the state-run media. it was that kind of level of propaganda. >> i got to tell you, i was waiting for it in anticipation. and here is what i got. i got a softball. i got a whiffle ball, a nerf ball, an air ball. >> it's like a soft boiled egg. >> croft challenged the president and secretary of state on the administration's brand of foreign policy. >> the biggest criticism of this team and the u.s. foreign policy from your political opposition has been what they say, an abdication of the united states on the world stage. >> somalia or gadhafi probably doesn't agree with that assessment, for he wasn't around he probably would not agree with that assessment. obviously we helped put together and lay the groundwork for liberating libya. when it comes to egypt, i think had it not been for the leadership we showed, you might have seen a diff
helped put president obama in the white house twice. let's turn to leo gerard, president of the united steelworkers international organization. mr. gerard good to have you with us tonight. >> good to be here. >> is this an issue that is going to help the labor force in this country? if you have 11 million workers come out of the shadows -- and let's face it, well over in the 90% have got to be, they're not all felons is the point i'm making. how is this going to help the labor movement in this country? >> look, these are primarily good people that came to america in search of the american dream, in search of a better standard of living. if you go back to the days of when we were told about nafta, we were told nafta would solve the immigration issue from mexico, but in reality what it did is depress mexican wages, depress mexican opportunity. and those people came here in search of a better life. so what we've been fighting, the labor movement has been fighting for proper immigration reform now for going on almost 20 years. and i think this is going to be a tremendous opportunity for pe
unexpectedly tough talk by president obama last week on the issue of climate change. i want to start by showing our viewers what exactly the president had to say. >> we will respond to climate change knowing that the failure to do so would fail our children and future generations. some may deny the overwhelming judgment of science but none can avoid raging fires and crippling drought and more powerful storms. the path towards sustainable energy sources will be long and sometimes difficult. but america cannot resist this transition. we must lead it. we cannot seed to other nations the technology that will power new jobs and new industry, we must climbs it's promise. that's how we will maintain our economic vitality and our national treasure. a forrest in water ways, our crop land and snow cappedpeeks. that is how we will preserve our planet, command it to our god. that is what will lend meaning to the creed of fathers once declired. >> a lot of time spent on the issue of climate change in that speesh. was it a surprise to folks in the environmental community? >> i think they expected a shout out
, who you saw president obama paying tribute to at his inauguration this week, just as he did at his inauguration in 2009. it was not until world war ii was over in 194 that president harry truman issued an executive order to desegregate the united states armed forces by race. nonwhite service members had been there all along. they had just never been treated equally. president truman ordered that to change. and it was not easy, and it was not even, but it was 1948. and the military having an overt policy of desegregation as of 1948 was a groundbreaking thing, not just for the military, but for our country. and in that same year of racial integration, in 1948, it's pretty much long forgotten, but in that same year in 1948, the congress also passed the women's armed services integration act. 1948. there had been of course the wac, the women's army corps and the marine corps women's reserve there had been a coast guard women's reserve group. but in 1948, the year truman said the military would be racially intergraded, women would too. they wouldn't be in a lady's auxiliary to the unit,
about one the top prior to issues with president obama and i think for the american people in this session of congress. >> that's climate change. joining us in studio bob deans is the communications director for the natural resources defense counsel. >> thanks for having me. >> bill: thank you. thanks for coming in. you didn't get the dress code i guess. >> i dress up now bill. >> peter: so much for casual fridays, man. >> bill: nice of you to raise the bar. >> peter: happy i just found a clean shirt this morning. >> bill: i have got to tell you a lot of republicans are saying today, today, you know, we need to do something about our party because we got schllacked by everybody but white males. bobby gendall of all people republican governor of louisiana who is room ordered to run and it may be next time. he was talking to a group of republicans in north carolina. he didn't pull any punches. he really said, man, this party has got to change. here he is. >> we've got to stop being the stupid party. i am serious. it's time for a new repu
to figure out how many gallons spilled into the river. >>> it's one of the key issues president obama wants to tackle in his second term, immigration reform. now it seems the president may be getting a little help from a group of bipartisan senators who will unveil their immigration proposal today. here's how one of those senators, new jersey democrat robert menendez, summed up the likelihood the legislation will pass. >> first of all, americans support it in poll after poll. secondly, lat sin no voters pet it. third, the democrats want it. fourth, the republicans need it. >> joining me now is congressman steve israel of new york, chairman of the democratic congressional campaign committee. good morning. >> good morning, carol. >> is menendez right? >> yes, he is right. and, look, we now have two of the three elms necessary to pass immigration reform. you've got a bipartisan group of senators, on the left and the right, who support immigration reform and will unveil their plan. you've got the president of the united states who will unveil his plan in las vegas tomorrow. now all we need are
's new issue. >> oldham. >> whatever. it features a wide ranging interview with president obama that's made a lot of news, man. chris, you know how to launch it, don't you, baby. that is good stuff. tell me what you're most surprised about what the president told you. >> for me personally it's just the tone. it's a brand new obama. i asked him about a new kind of politics and his answer was that institutional and form in the media have made it very difficult to deliver on that sort of grand promise four years -- >> isn't that ironic, democrats come in and i think they get a much freer pass to the white house than republicans but it always seems to be the democrats, the clintons and now barack obama that has this terrible relationship with the media. >> well, i mean -- is that fair? >> i think the media environment we live in in 2013 is different than it was ten years ago. we've all seen the demise of the night live news, people just follow the people that are in their corner on twitter. there is a different media environment. at the same time there were very high expectations in 2008
is an obama supporter and i want to know, the president pushed hard on climate change, a big issue for him. i think that might mean a carbon tax. what do you think of a carbon tax? >> global warming is a real issue and what is the most of corn tissue of our time, the environment we live in. obviously we have to protect it. i think that is a possibility and probably something that may be effective. stuart: wouldn't do any good? >> if we could get bipartisan support, it could -- stuart: when it would lower carbon emissions in a miniscule, may be lower the temperature is your.1% over a longer period of time. it is just a fund of money. that is why -- that is what it is all about. >> those dollars would be used for other efforts to control and focus on changing climate. stuart: they would just fill government coffers with that the needed money. >> if that is the case they wouldn't be a good thing. stuart: when you are if in favor of carbon tax to raise money. >> i am not. i am in favor of it as a way of controlling, beginning to control global warming and giving resources to combat it. stuart: i
. >>> many in washington are still reacting to president obama's immigration speech in las vegas yesterday where he said now is the time to fix what he called a broken system. republicans are only willing so far to compromise on the issue. nbc's tracie potts joins us live. >> reporter: hi, mara. good morning. now on capitol hill begins the process what could be a tedious process of sorting out what is is different for the president's proposal after the speech yesterday and also with the bipartisan group of lawmakers, democrats and republicans came up with the broad principles here appear to be the same. beefing up the borders and the pass to citizenship for the estimated 11 million illegal immigrants in this country. but neither plan has full details at this point. and it raises a lot of questions, for example, how long will this immigration process take? lawmakers want to make sure border security happens first. the president did not mention that. so that could make a difference in how long it actually takes to get this path to citizenship under way. the other big issue, same-sex immigran
issue in presidential they worked on behalf of the obama campaign. your question which is smart one, why are they doing this? i don't know. "60 minutes" is good show a lot of the time. martha: they will take heat for this for some time. >> he is like kryptonite for them. martha: "60 minutes" interview with the president, propaganda. >> melts with obama for some reason. >> also, martha, the other thing is probably the first half the interview is old news. we know how the secretary of state was chosen. we know about the back and forth. this already has been reported on. this is not new information like he was getting new insight how this came about and how they got over their relationship. it really was just a campaign endorsement. martha: yeah. huge questions about how good a secretary of state hillary clinton really was linker when you look at north africa, as you say, talk about the middle east, we could talk about that for quite some time. i want to talk about the political implications why they wanted to do this together. poor joe biden out there, every chance he gets slipping in, i m
to sway legislators through public pressure, organizing for action, obama's relaunched campaign arm, is sending out e-mails to supporters, writing tell your members of congress that you want to see decisive action on this issue in in addition to actions focused on gun safety, the president calls for new legislation, including universal background checks, limits on high-capacity magazines and a ban on assault weapons. this past week, california democratic senator dianne feinstein proposed a ban that would be more restrictive than the one that expired a decade ago. >> this is really an uphill road. if anyone asks today, can you win this? the answer is, we don't know, it's so uphill. >> reporter: the nation's largest gun lobby, the national rifle association, released this statement. the american people know gun bans do not work and we are confident congress will reject senator feinstein's wrong headed approach. the nra was criticized by one of its own members for running this ad, which brought the president's daughters into the debate. >> are the president's kids more important than y
for the lead on immigration reform right now, president obama laid down his marker on this issue in las vegas yesterday. take a look. >> we all agree that these men and women should have to earn their way to citizenship. but for comprehensive immigration reform to work, it must be clear from the outset that there is a pathway to citizenship. [applause] martha: you heard the big applause there but the blueprint released by these eight senators would not let illegal i am hi grants immigrants seek citizenship until border security is increased in a comprehensive way. arizona senator jeff flake is in the group and he joins me now. good morning. >> thank for having me on. martha: what is your reaction saying not needing to have border security completely shored up before you have a path to citizenship? >> no you have to have a pathway it citizenship is important to the president, the border protection especially important to us in arizona. we've got to have it. martha: marco rubio agrees with you. he doesn't want to get into a bidding war on this. this group of bipartisan senators agreed on this p

between she and president obama. how important would it be to get immigration reform done and then set the table for her to take on another big issue in this country? which of course could be health care, which of course could be women's rights. >> absolutely. and the health care plan we have right now is a lot closer to the one she proposed during the campaign because barack obama was against the individual mandate and she was for it. but yeah, on immigration, if immigration reform were to get done, i think republicans are even starting to realize this, it would redound mostly to the benefit of democrats. latinos are trending toward the democratic party on most issues. i think it would help republicans only marginally and democrats a lot more. it would get that issue off the table. if she were to run, which a lot of people think she will, i think she will, she is going to have a lot of successes in the previous administration to kind of push off and run. >> joy reid, great to have you on "the ed show." thank you. >> good to be here. >> a lot more coming up in the next half hour of the

. >> her discipline, her stamina, her thoughtfulness, her ability to project i think and make clear issues that are important to the american people i thought made her an extraordinary talent. she also was already a world figure. >> in many ways this was obama pulling frankly a bill clinton, a politically shrewd move, all about the clintons and hillary ace political future. the joke is whether vice president joe biden has been peeled off the ceiling yet but on what may have been the more interesting obama interview published this weekend, the president talked gun control, the future of both parties and football with the "new republic" as they tried to relaunch. the president acknowledged getting gun control through congress will be tough and said "if you group up and your dad gave you a hunting rifle when you were 10 and you spent the day whim and your uncle and that became part of i don't are family traditions, you can see why you would be protective of that." ask if he ever fired a gun, the president went as far to say up at camp david we do skeet shooting all the time. the president wil
